Do I have Peyronie’s disease?
My Penis only has a slight bend when erect – does that mean I have Peyronie’s?
How common is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s Treatments that failed and/ or came up short of expectations, include: The limitations of Verapamil
An L-type phenylalkylamine class calcium channel blocker, of the type known generically as “Verapamil,” has long been used as a treatment for plaque decimation to treat Peyronie’s disease. We also use Verapamil during our treatment system. However, by itself? Verapamil is simply not powerful enough to dissolve plaque commonly found in Peyronie’s patients. It’s a support tool – not a solution
One of our most common ED “repair” projects stem from patients who’ve been getting Priapus® or “P-Shots®”. This treatment is commonly provided as the be-all for any penile issues: from Peyronie’s Disease to ED – and numerous providers cite extensive studies that support these amazing outcomes.
Where did it come from? A few years ago, the same entrepreneur who launched “The Vampire Facelift®” branded and launched his own version of platelet rich plasma injections as something novel and did a great job promoting this new marketing beast as something wonderful. Lots of cash-starved physicians and urologists were all to happy to provide this well marketed service. Worse still? Lots of other physicians tried hopping on this train wreck with their own even less developed approaches to platelet rich plasma injections.
The only supporting medical evidence for the efficacy of these treatments was from an 11-patient panel, performed in less than ideal standards by an unaccredited Medical School. Thus, it’s simply a branded, trademark protected and licensed inched novelty that’s helping cash-starved non-urologists make extra money.
Dr. Morganstern was one of the first urologists to test platelet rich plasma injections into the penis in the 1980’s. After extensive testing and research, he found results were not beneficial and presented the potential for penis trauma by injected a foreign material into the sensitive tissue (which can lead to Peyronie’s disease).
It does offer a short-lived “placebo effect” since the injection of your reconstituted blood temporarily adds increased girth and a sense of a harder penis. Alas, the potential for damage far outweighs this temporary outcome – not to mention the constant hit to your bank account.
None of the recognized urologic leaders in erectile dysfunction offer this service – for good reason.
Don’t fall for this treatment!
Simply stated: this shot is pretty much worthless and will probably eventually end up classified like most marketing gimmicks: a mistake.
A long-term retrospective follow-up of Peyronie’s disease patients who have undergone surgery for the condition reveals a rise in curvature recurrence as well as increased postoperative erectile dysfunction.
Simply stated: PD surgery usually results in a shorter penis and a strong likelihood of erectile dysfunction. This is but one reason less than 2% of all cases end up in surgery.
Surgery for PD is currently only indicated in the chronic, stable state of the disease in patients with a degree of curvature that does not allow for sexual intercourse and/or causes pain, the study’s authors pointed out.
A quick glance from a Google search offers a myriad of worthless “cure with a pill” Peyronie’s treatment solutions designed to snag the uneducated guy. It’s wrong. It’s unfair. It’s a reality of the life and times we now live in.
There are no approved or proven pills to treat Peyronie’s disease. You can’t remove plaque with a pill: for the heart or the penis.
One of the most challenging circumstances we’ve endured while healing patients with CurveFree™ technology is hearing the horror stories some men already endured trying new processes that didn’t work. The combined amount of time, money, and anguish endured from these failures is depressing. Worse still? Many of these same “solutions” ended up causing additional penis trauma resulting in worse curvature and additional plaque.
